KEY POINTS

  • Floyd Mayweather is open to facing Conor McGregor in a rematch
  • Mayweather Promotions CEO airs support for a second boxing encounter
  • Logan Paul vows to give Mayweather a tough fight

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the odds-on favorite to prevail against Logan Paul although the 26-year-old vows to give the former boxing champion some stiff competition.

Regardless, the 44-year-old could care less and appears to be looking beyond the Logan Paul fight.

There remains no official word on who Mayweather may face after the YouTuber. But one name that could get a piece of Mayweather once again is UFC star Conor McGregor.

The unbeaten American boxer responded to questions surrounding a potential McGregor rematch and seems to be open to the idea.

"Absolutely," Mayweather said on Thursday. "The beef is all these guys look up to me, steal my blueprint, and then they hate on me."

Aside from that, it appears Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe is all for it.

"Conor, if you’re listening, you can get that too," the executive stated.

It was in 2017 when Mayweather and McGregor first met in the boxing ring. It was one of the largest pay-per-view events in history, generating more than $600 million in domestic revenue and 4.3 million in home purchases.

From the numbers alone, seeing a Mayweather vs. McGregor II makes sense.

Being open to a Mayweather vs. McGregor rematch is one thing, but closing the deal is another.

One thing to note is that the responses of Mayweather and Ellerbe could be a way to quash the comments McGregor made on social media.

The Irish mixed martial artist feels that the Mayweather vs. Paul fight will not breach the $10 million mark and called on “Money” to fight someone real.

"Pro to pro, it's embarrassing. He will not scratch $10M for this fight and he knows it. It was canceled once already. The world is watching this on Twitter. He'd fight a half-decent pro and command $20< upwards, yet it's this s--t. Whatever way you spin this, it's sad. Fight someone for real, on your record, or f--k off mate," McGregor’s Instagram post read.

Mayweather Jr. will face Paul on Sunday, June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida starting at 8:00 p.m. E.T.

The event will be streamed via Showtime app or through Showtime PPV priced at $49.99.
